The national crew & facilities database lists thousands of crew and facility companies based outside Greater London. From runners to riggers, honeywagons to hairdressers, caterers to camera operators, the service puts productions in touch with people working in every English region across all genres of production.
In addition to the crew database, we also offer a free bespoke service, including advice and guidance, and post out film and TV jobs to the crew database and through our Twitter feed @CEnglandprodn.
Productions that have used the crewing service over the last six months include Peaky Blinders, Trollied, Scott & Bailey, Spooks – The Greater Good, Utopia, Testament of Youth as well as numerous documentaries, commercials and music promos.
In the last financial year the Production Services team supported a record £80.5million of location filming incorporating nearly 1000 productions, including 95 features films and 89 TV dramas, shooting across England.

BAFTA Crew is a major new skills development and networking programme for experienced craft and technical crew working in film and television in England. Run by The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), and supported by Skillset Craft and Technical Skills Academy and Creative England, the programme supports over 200 crew.
BAFTA Crew is designed to develop the film production skills and contacts of crew across England, with the ultimate aim of supporting the production infrastructure and developing ‘below-the-line' talent outside of the capital.
Successful BAFTA Crew are based in the English regions outside London and represent craft areas including production design, camera, sound and visual effects, costume, hair and make-up, editing and production management.
The initiative includes live and online masterclasses delivered by film industry professionals drawn from BAFTA's highly successful pool of winners, nominees and members. They are hosted at BAFTA Crew partner venues across England. Speakers in the past year have included Production Designer Andy Nicholson (Gravity), Editor Mark Sanger (Gravity) and Production Sound Mixer Ray Beckett (Zero Dark Thirty, The Hurt Locker).
Tickets are also available to the public via the venues hosting the masterclasses. Full details of our BAFTA Crew activities can be found on our events page.
Further information on the programme, including a full list of BAFTA crew members, is available here.
